You don’t have to spend as much time on your BPTs (best possible texts) and you can go ahead and throw texting timelines out the window! Flirtexting in a relationship opens the door for you to explore the other, shall we say, more risqué things you can do with text.
The term originally referred to messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS).
It has grown beyond alphanumeric text to include multimedia messages (known as MMS) containing digital images, videos, and sound content, as well as ideograms known as emoji (happy faces and other icons).
Text messaging, or texting, is the act of composing and sending electronic messages, typically consisting of alphabetic and numeric characters, between two or more users of mobile phones, fixed devices (e.g., desktop computers) or portable devices (e.g., tablet computers or smartphones).
While text messages are usually sent over a phone network, due to the convergence between the telecommunication and broadcasting industries in the 2000s, text messages may also be sent via a cable network or Local Area Network.
If you are reading this chapter it means that you have successfully passed through the early stages of flirtexting and into a fabulous committed relationship. Now, just because you have entered into the land of “we” does not mean that you can call up your cell phone provider and cancel your unlimited texting plan.
